Derek Hough Set to Perform on Dancing with the Stars Season 29

Cross Posted from PureDerekHough.com…

Looks like October 19 is the first, hopefully not the last, time they will be performing this season!! Hooray!! According to ET via AOL (I’ve not seen it anywhere else yet):

Derek Hough is returning to the ballroom! On Wednesday, ABC announced that the 35-year-old Dancing With the Stars judge will perform during the Oct. 19 episode, marking the first time he’s done so since 2017.

The dancer will perform with his girlfriend — who’s also a former DWTS pro — Hayley Erbert. Hough, who’s currently serving as a DWTS judge, previously competed as a pro for 17 seasons, most recently in 2016. He won the mirrorball a total of six times, the most of any pro.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Producer (Tries to) Defends Himself After Letting Tom Bergeron Go From Season 29

Yeah, this dude is full of crap. Get a load of this from ET.

“It’s all about evolution,” he told reporters Wednesday during Day 2 of ABC’s virtual fall press day. “Any show like this that has been on for many, many seasons needs to continue to evolve. So I think changing that host is all about evolution. It was all about making the show feel fresh, making it feel new and make it reach out to a new audience — as well as the audience that’s been there for years.”

While viewers have lamented the absence of Bergeron and Andrews, Llinares believes switching from a two-host format to one has been “working brilliantly.”

“I think it’s really refreshed the pace of the show. It’s taken it to a new place, in terms of moving fast and feeling different. I think that there’s a real danger when a show has been on for a long time that the audience almost gets bored of the rhythm of it. It doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with it, just that it gets a little boring,” he said. “I think it’s changed the rhythm of the show in a really exciting way. I think Tyra is doing an amazing, amazing job. It’s been wonderful having her energy in the ballroom and her expertise as a host in the ballroom. She’s brought a new life to everything.”

If he had left it at the first paragraph, I might have believed him. but then he goes on and on. And not just the above…he carries on even after saying “she brought new life to everything”.

He doubled down on parting ways with Bergeron and Andrews, reiterating that it’s about keeping the show “relevant.”

“When a show’s been on for this many seasons, it’s very easy to stay in a place where it doesn’t feel like there’s anything wrong but does the show feel fresh, exciting and new? It’s really tough… We’ve always been successful on all those shows where we continue to evolve and continue to move things on. That’s something we’ve been doing right across the board with this show,” Llinares explained. “The host is part of it, bringing Derek in is part of it, but also throughout the fabric of everything on the show — the set has been updated, it feels more current and the way we’re filming the packages… all of those things take the show into a place where it feels more current. We wanted to make the show feel relevant, but still hold on to the heart of the show.”

There’s this old saying “Me thinks he doth protest too much”….meaning, if you’d shut the fuck up about it we might have believed you. But the constant blathering on makes you sound…guilty. Apologies to Shakespear fans, I know the actual line is: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”

He also claims he’s been talking to Derek “for months” and the original plan was to have the original three judges plus Derek. Um, can you imagine four judges and 15 couples AND Tyrant?? Yeah, me neither.

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 3 – LIVE BLOG

Question of the night….maybe we should bet on it. They are down to 14 couples. Where will the extra time go? Choose from the following:

A) Tyra talks WAY more.
B) The Judges all get more time.
C) Tyra talks more, cuts Derek off and he cuts a bitch.

Just kidding on that last one, of course…he can be cutting in his humor though. I would pay to see that one. I vote A. You?

T-Minus 11 minutes and I haven’t eaten dinner yet.

And the all about Tyra show starts. I thought she was going to ride the snail. 🙂

Skai is up first…love that she grabbed Alan’s hair to try to stop a fall. …Read more

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Disney night…another night that is also known as Tyrant (tm Court) Night. Just another cold open starring Tyra because this show is ALL ABOUT HER.

The show will begin with a cold open of host Tyra Banks and celebrities taking the viewing audience into their favorite classic Disney films. Episodes can be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.

Like everyone in the universe predicted, including Derek who tried to get the reporters to take bets, Carole is dancing to something from Lion King. Really, producers, at this point you’re just pathetic and sad. Derek was also correct when he said, “I feel like it’s all been done.” Yep, few surprises here. “Up” and “Newsies” might both be new. They also have the obligatory new Disney film they need to pimp – Nelly got stuck with that one.

AJ & Cheryl – Quickstep (“Prince Ali” from “Aladdin”)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Foxtrot (“How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana”)

Monica & Val – Waltz (“Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid”)

Vernon & Peta – Quickstep (“Be Our Guest” from “Beauty and the Beast”)

Anne & Keo – Quickstep (“Zero to Hero” from “Hercules”)

Justina & Sasha – Charleston (“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins”)

Jeannie & Brandon – Viennese Waltz (“Married Life” from “Up”)

Skai & Alan – Jive (“Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog”)

Johnny & Britt -Rumba (“Reflection” from “Mulan”)

Jesse & Sharna – Jive (“King of New York” from “Newsies”)

Nelly & Daniella- Foxtrot (“It’s Alright” from “Soul”)

Nev & Jenna – Argentine Tango (“Angelica” from “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”)

Chrishell & Gleb – Waltz (“A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from “Cinderella”)

Carole & Pasha – Samba (“Circle of Life” from “The Lion King”)

In the category of “who danced it better”, here are some examples of what’s been already done on this show using many of these same songs.

“A Whole New World” has been danced to a million times, but I couldn’t find Prince Ali.

I almost feel bad for Justina and Sasha. They have to live up to Charlie and Sharna, and this dance is fantastic – broken umbrella and all.

Simone and Sasha dances a lovely contemporary to “How Far I’ll Go”…

I may update with more later…YouTube is taking forever to load and it’s not my connection, soooo….

Derek Hough Talks Carole Baskin, DWTS and World of Dance

Sort of cross posted from PureDerekHough…excerpt is a bit different since this is a DWTS site.

This is an illuminating article from TV Line with what Derek had to say after last night’s show (excerpt below). He also says he plans to dance later in the season.

Hough told TV Insider and a small group of reporters after the show that it’s more than a bit challenging when he sees the clock ticking away with only a few seconds left and he needs to render his decision. “Carrie Ann [Inaba] was like, ‘Let me tell you why [I’m choosing who I’m choosing] and Bruno’s like, ‘Let me tell you why…’” Hough notes with a good-natured chuckle. “Then, it was, ‘Derek you have to give us an answer!’”

Fortunately, Hough, who first appeared on the show as a pro dancer in Season 5, knows the drill. “Hey, it’s my job,” he says. “I can’t complain.” Plus, he reveals, to his understanding, he won’t be the one called upon to be a potential tie-breaker each week. “It’ll trade off,” he muses, adding wryly, “but I want to thank everyone for leaving it up to me!”

—-

“It really was the progress that [Carole] had made,” says the professional dancer of choosing the Big Cat Rescue owner, who caught himself being lost in the “beauty and grace” of Baskin’s Viennese Waltz with partner Pasha Pashkov. “I had to look at it from that perspective.”

About his development deal:

“There are already a few projects that are coming up,” he teases. “I felt like it was a right fit with ABC and Disney for things we have in mind.”

A bit more about this season of DWTS:

Hough’s in no rush for couples to leave the competition, but he is hoping there will soon be more air time for him to go into detailed critiques that will ideally help couples deliver more entertaining routines.

“There are definitely moments where I’d love to say, ‘Choreographically, try this approach,’” Hough says. “Sometimes, that will be said off-screen [but] I genuinely want to help people improve.”

Dancing With The Stars 29 Week Two – Interviews, Recaps, Scores, One Disney Dance Reveal, And Extras

ETA2: More interviews added below, a report on Tom, and more critiques on Tyra.

ETA: More interviews added below. Keep checking back.

Another week down, but, is it just me? Everything feels so rushed and the dances feel so short? For instance, the creativity and story of Johnny and Britt’s dance was just getting started and then it ended. It seemed like the case for most everyone. And poor Derek Hough having to cut several of his critiques. It didn’t seem fair, but, my faves of the night: AJ and Cheryl, Nev & Jenna, Justina & Sasha, and Jesse & Sharna. I’m not giving up on Johnny & Britt yet, but, I really hope they start wowing us soon. Same with Peta & Vernon who I really like too.

Ok, so let’s check out the scores from last night in order….

Skai & Alan 21 (7, 7, 7)
Justina & Sasha 21 (7, 7, 7)
Kaitlyn & Artem 20 (6, 7, 7)
Nev & Jenna 20 (7, 7, 6)
Johnny & Britt 18 (6, 6, 6)

Jesse & Sharna 18 (6, 6, 6)
Anne & Keo 18 (6, 6, 6)
AJ & Cheryl 18 (6, 6, 6)
Vernon & Peta 17 (5, 6, 6)
Nelly & Daniella 16 (5, 5, 6)
Chrishell & Gleb 13 (4, 5, 4)
Charles & Emma 12 (4, 4, 4)
Carole & Pasha 11 (4, 4, 3)

And now onto some interviews and recaps. Don’t forget next week is Disney Night. Johnny tells us at twitter that he will be performing to “Reflection” from Disney’s “Mulan”
by his idol, Christina Aguilera.

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 2 – LIVE BLOG

Okay, so tonight I’m going to attempt to do what I did last season and that is combine the live blog with Dancing by the Numbers. TRY. 🙂  It ain’t easy, that’s for sure,  and I’m rusty….but I think I can pull it off thanks to my handy spreadsheet.  It will be tough with 15 couples, but let’s give it  a shot!!

T-minus 30 minutes…

A note about the numbers…to calculate more accurate numbers, I started with everyone getting the same score this week as they got last week in order to get the total number of points closer to reality. As the show goes along, I will input the correct score which likely won’t change the overall points by overly much. Using this method, right now, only 3,800 votes per million votes cast separate Carole and Charles.  Only 7,700 votes separate Carole and Chrishell…prior to dancing.  Both numbers can and will change, but if it’s very similar then you can easily see how Carole could stay over someone like Chrishell who isn’t as well known. What would help is if Chrishell does a great dance 2nd or 3rd, while Carole sucks and goes last.  We’ll soon find out!

The celebs are funny…but who told Tyra she is?  🙂  I see we have another week of Tyra’s catwalk where she’s even more important than the judges. Read more..

Derek Hough Signs New Overall Deal with ABC Entertainment

Cross posting this from PureDerekHough, since Derek is back on DWTS…and possibly will be beyond this season as well…

Well, sounds to me like Derek has fully rejoined the ABC family. Derek previously had a first look deal with Universal which apparently didn’t work out very well since we haven’s seen any content (except maybe Holidays with the Houghs??) produced by him in the year since he signed it. Of course, I’m assuming that you don’t have these kinds of deals with more than one company. Seems like a good assumption. Also not sure what the difference is between a “first look” and an “overall” deal. The first is in the name – perhaps the second is more solid?? No idea. Anyway, good for him and I hope we see something from him SOON. Something that includes his face on my TV screen. 🙂 From the ABC Press Release:

Today, ABC Entertainment announced an overall deal with Emmy® Award winner, six-time Mirrorball champion dancer and “Dancing with the Stars” judge Derek Hough. In this role, Hough will host and develop specials and entertainment programming for the network.

“Coming home to ABC and being given the opportunity to develop projects for them that are as much on brand for them as they are for me makes this even that more exciting for me,” said Derek Hough.

“Derek is a creative force not just in the ballroom but also every room he enters,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “He has been part of our ABC family for many years; the energy and dedication he brings to every project is palpable. We value his partnership immensely and look forward to the exciting and imaginative projects to come.”

Here’s the answer to one question thanks to Variety:

News of his deal comes just one week after the season 29 debut of “Dancing With the Stars,” and just over a year after Hough signed a first-look deal with Universal Television. At the time, Hough was a judge on “World of Dance,” but sources say he is no longer under that pact.
